Name is Greg, My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,

The P0101 code is most likely your problem ,what i suggest you do first is remove this and clean with MAF spray cleaner ,,this issue could make your engine stall .

Here what also should be checked for this code .
Oil cap or dipstick missing or not correctly fitted.
Air leak after the MAF sensor ,possible manifold gasket .
Wiring or connector problem ,

P1500 is the VSS (Vehicle speed sensor )

This could be one of the following .
Cluster's speedometer .
wiring from the VSS to the cluster speedometer damaged .
wiring between the TCM and speedometer damaged .

P1613 Immobilizer-Communication Malfunction.

P000 this could be the scan tool you are using that could not read the code .

I would check the wiring first and repair if you find any damage , then if all is ok clean the MAF or try a known good one ,clear all codes and do a test drive .

If the speedometer is working then have the wiring from the VSS to the TCM checked .

Your mechanics should be able to do this for you with out too much problems .

And if you still have issue then please get back to me for further assistance .

Kindest regards Greg
